    Even though ur config is way better than ur friends, S3 onboard sucks ! Thats y ur frnd got a slightly better score with his Intel onbrd gfx. And dude 3dmark03 is meant for gfx cards and not for testing onboard solutions.

    3dmark 03 is mainly a GPU test ... in other words processor or other components will not make much difference ... use PC Mark 04 or (if you want to test gaming performance) 3d mark 01 SE
    The reason his scores higher is because the intel 865 is better than s3 onboard.

    yup ujjwal is right , thats precisely what you need to do , run pcmark instead of 3d marks , cause the test which you ran just tests weather intel or S3 is better and i guess you got ur answer :)

    It's just a regular Radeon 9600, not a SE, pro, or XT, with 128mb ddr ram.
